Kendrick Lamar Honors Snoop Dogg at BET Hip-Hop Awards

Presenting Snoop Dogg with the I Am Hip-Hop honor at the BET Hip-Hop Awards on Saturday (Sept. 17) at Atlanta’s Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre, Kendrick Lamar spoke highly of the revered West Coast pioneer.

“He mastered the game through tests and challenges that earned him the respect of a college professor, except his game came from the streets,” said K-Dot (via Chicago Sun-Times). “He put [me] on game, so I would avoid the same pitfalls. … Snoop Dogg was the god and continues to be so.”

Snoop continued to share his insight on stage while accepting his award.

“To all the young rappers in the game, a lot of people don’t understand you,” he said. “Y’all are misunderstood. I was misunderstood at the beginning. So you got to keep pushing, be original and diverse. Hip-hop was created many years ago, and it’s taken people so many places. You have to be who you are.”

Hosted by DJ Khaled, the BET Hip-Hop Awards also featured performances from Gucci Mane, T.I., Young Thug, Travis Scott, and Desiigner, among others. Fans will have to wait to see the whole show, which is set to air Oct. 4 on BET.

2016 BET Hip Hop Award Show Honors Snoop Dogg With - I Am Hip Hop - Award Presented By Kendrick Lamar, HipHopDX

Kendrick Lamar Presents Snoop Dogg With "I Am Hip Hop" Award At The 2016 BET Hip-Hop Awards

Atlanta, GA – Snoop Dogg was honored at the 2016 BET Hip-Hop Awards with the “I Am Hip Hop” Award, which was taped Saturday (September 17) in Atlanta.

Kendrick Lamar presented his Uncle Snoop with the honor in front of a packed crowd at the Cobb Energy Performing Centre and gave praise to one the rap legends who helped shape his attitude and pave the way for artists like himself, MSN reports.

“He mastered the game through tests and challenges that earned him the respect of a college professor, except his game came from the streets,” the Compton-bred rapper says. “He put (me) on game, so I would avoid the same pitfalls…Snoop Dogg was the god, and continues to be so.”

Dr. Dre and Pharrell Williams also paid their respects to the Dogg Father during the 11th annual ceremony. Snoop said it felt “amazing” to be honored by BET.

During his acceptance speech, Snoop took the time to share some wisdom with young, up and coming musicians and Hip Hop talent looking for their big break. He encourages them to continue to push the envelope and embrace their creativity.

“To all the young rappers in the game, a lot of people don’t understand you,” Snoop says. “Y’all are misunderstood. I was misunderstood at the beginning. So you got to keep pushing, be original and diverse. Hip Hop was created many years ago and it’s taken people so many places. You have to be who you are.”

When Snoop first stepped on the scene it was under the guidance of beatmaker, Dr. Dre. He released his 1993 debut album DoggyStyle featuring classic cuts such as “Gin and Juice” and “What’s My Name?” Still putting in work, the 44-year-old rapper just wrapped up The High Road Tour with Wiz Khalifa early September and dropped Coolaid, his fourteenth studio album, ahead of the trekking across the country.

“He means so much to Hip Hop,” the A-Town hero, Jeezy said. “There are so many who look up to him. He paved a way for so many, and that’s why everybody knows him as Uncle Snoop.”

T.I., Gucci Mane and DJ Khaled were among those who performed on this year’s Hip Hop Awards stage with Lil Wayne and Kevin Hart hopping on BET’s Cypher freestyles.

Lamar nabbed an award for Lyricist of the Year while Fat Joe and Remy Ma won Track of the Year award for their wildly popular song “All the Way Up.” DJ Khaled rightfully took home The Hustler of the Year Award and Best New Hip-Hop Artist went to Chance the Rapper.

The 11th annual BET Hip Hop Awards is scheduled to air October 4.

Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! You’re Far Too Kind

Plus, exclusive interviews with DJ Prince Paul and OMB Peezy.

The 12-track project also features Joyner Lucas, Supakine and BJ The Chicago Kid.

The Latest: Remy Ma beats Minaj for BET s hip hop honor

The Latest: Remy Ma beats Minaj for BET's hip hop honor

The Latest on the BET Awards being presented from the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles (all times local):

Remy Ma has ended Nicki Minaj's seven year winning streak for best female hip hop artist at the BET Awards.

Ma's win Sunday was the final award handed out in the show that ran late at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles and easily one of the most anticipated of the night.

Ma, who returned from jail in 2014, thanked God and named two correctional facilities in her speech and told others that they can come back.

"It's hard but you can do it," Ma said. "You can make mistakes and come back."

In March, Ma released the diss track "Shether," which was hostile toward Minaj and earned praised from critics and rap fans. Minaj never officially responded to the song.

Ma ended by quoting from one of her songs with Fat Joe and walked away with the award high in her hands.

At the tender age of 24, Chance the Rapper has accepted the humanitarian award during the BET Awards on Sunday for his work in his hometown of Chicago, winning over fans for both his musical talents and his philanthropic efforts.

One of his biggest fans, former First Lady Michelle Obama, delivered a taped message for the rapper, saying he was an "outstanding role model" who shined his big light on young people in the community.

Chance acknowledged that the honor felt early in his young career, but said, "My God doesn't make mistakes."

The rapper said he didn't prepare a speech. When the crowd cheered at one point, he urged them on, telling them to "Please, gas me up!" The cheers grew louder, and he shifted his remarks from his own feelings about the award to other topics.

His wide-ranging speech called out several institutions, including the federal government, the Chicago public school system and the judicial system. But he ended by saying he was a good man, and he wanted to be better.

Bruno Mars has won the BET Award for best male R&B pop artist — his first award from a network that he credits with catapulting him to stardom.

Mars said Sunday that BET aired the first award he won — a Soul Train honor for his single with B.o.B. "Nothin' on You." He thanked several executives for showing him what he called "nothing but love and support of my career."

Mars beat out Chris Brown, The Weeknd, Trey Songz and Usher for the award.

It was a big night at the awards ceremony for Mars — he kicked off the show with a high energy yet playful performance of his song "Perm."

Bruno Mars has opened the 2017 BET Award dancing and playing in synchronization with his band the Hooligans to a performance of "Perm."

The pop star paused his performance Sunday to fake-chastise the crowd for not being excited enough and playing around on Instagram during his performance at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

Host and comedian Leslie Jones, sporting a knee brace and pacing the stage while toweling herself off like an NBA player, brought her high energy, breathless delivery to the opening monologue. She said she injured herself playing basketball but said she wasn't going to hide the brace, declaring, "That's when you know that you're getting old, 'cause you just don't care."

The hip-hop trio Migos won the night's first honor — the best group award.

The "B'' in BET Awards could stand for Beyonce or Bruno Mars.

Both pop stars are the top nominees at Sunday's show, where they will compete in four of the same categories, including video of the year.

Beyonce, who dominated last year's show with multiple wins and a show-stopping performance, is up for seven honors. Mars, who will open the show at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, is nominated for five awards.

Mars and Beyonce will also compete for album of the year, video director of the year and the viewer's choice award.

Leslie Jones of "Saturday Night Live" will host the show, which is set to feature performances by Mary J. Blige, Chris Brown and DJ Khaled.

Solange, Migos and Big Sean are also nominated for video of the year.

Snoop Dogg honored in politically charged BET Hip-Hop Awards, This is Money

Snoop Dogg honored in politically charged BET Hip-Hop Awards

Published: 04:54 BST, 18 September 2016 | Updated: 04:55 BST, 18 September 2016

ATLANTA (AP) — Snoop Dogg said he initially felt misunderstood at the beginning of his rap career that ended up turning into a legendary one while accepting his "I Am Hip Hop" honor during a politically-charged BET Hip-Hop Awards show near Atlanta.

Rapper Kendrick Lamar surprised attendees Saturday evening by introducing and handing Snoop the award during the 11th annual awards, which was taped. Lamar, in front of a packed crowd at the Cobb Energy Performing Centre, said the ultra-smooth West Coast rapper "paved a way into many hearts" with his authentic rap flow and infectious persona.

Hip-hop royalty from Dr. Dre to Pharrell Williams paid homage to Snoop, a legend in his own right.

"He mastered the game through tests and challenges that earned him the respect of a college professor, except his game came from the streets," Lamar said. "He put (me) on game, so I would avoid the same pitfalls. . Snoop Dogg was the God, and continues to be so."

During his acceptance speech, Snoop encouraged up-and-coming rappers to continue to "push the envelope" in being creative and original.

"To all the young rappers in the game, a lot of people don't understand you. Y'all are misunderstood," he said. "I was misunderstood at the beginning. So you got to keep pushing, be original and diverse. Hip-hop was created many years ago and it's taken people so many places. You have to be who you are."

When Snoop Dogg wasn't being honored, the show focused its attention toward police brutality of African-Americans.

Wearing all black, T.I. performed his politically-charged song "We Will Not" as a stage full of people sporting dark attire held up "Black Lives Matter" signs. The rapper said he was motivated to write the song after hearing about a series of deaths of black people including Sandra Bland, who died while in police lockup after a traffic stop, and Philando Castile who was fatally shot by police during a traffic stop. Castile was licensed to carry and had a firearm in his car.

Rapper Big K.R.I.T. and Lecrae, a Christian rapper, expressed their thoughts on the matter through their own poems and radio host Sway Calloway stood alongside Khaled and said "we're at war." Actor Shameik Moore encouraged people to cast their vote.

T.I. said at the end of his performance that blacks should unite adding that "they can't kill us all."

Before the show, Snoop said it felt "amazing" to be honored by the network. He broke through under the guidance of hit maker Dr. Dre, releasing his 1993 debut album "Doggystyle," which featured iconic songs including "Gin and Juice" and "What's My Name?"

"He means so much to hip-hop," rapper Young Jeezy said. "There are so many who look up to him. He paved a way for so many, and that's why everybody knows him as Uncle Snoop."

Rapper Gucci Mane, recently released from prison, hit the stage first. He performed four songs, kicking his set off with "First Day Out" and "First Day Out Tha Feds" during his performance. The rapper made his return after being released in late May from a Federal Correctional Institution in Terre Haute, Indiana.

He served a three-year sentence after pleading guilty to aggravated assault for attacking a fan at an Atlanta nightclub. That sentence ran concurrently with a 39-month federal sentence he was given in 2014 for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

First-time host DJ Khaled followed with "Holy Key" with soul singer Betty Wright and a choir dressed in gold.

There were several recorded freestyle sessions, known as The Cypher, featuring several artists including Lil Wayne and comedian Kevin Hart, who rapped shirtless wearing dark sunglasses. During Hart's rap, some laughed while other applauded his efforts.

Lamar took home Lyricist of the Year, Fat Joe and Remy Ma won Track of the Year award for their song "All the Way Up." The Hustler of the Year honor went to DJ Khaled, and Best New Hip-Hop Artist was earned by Chance the Rapper, who was not in attendance.

Rapper Desiigner closed out the show with "Timmy Turner."

The show will air on BET on Oct. 4.

This version of the story corrects the title of the song performed by T.I. to "We Will Not."

This story has been corrected to show that Sandra Bland died while in police lockup and Philandro Castille had a licensed firearm in his car when he was shot by police, not that they both were shot by police while unarmed.
